EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A St. Louis woman has been sentenced to six months of home detention as part of five years of probation for opening and stealing packages while working as a supervisor at a southwestern Illinois post office.

Forty-two-year-old Jane Johanna Emily, who’s also known as Jane Moeller, pleaded guilty in April in East St. Louis to charges of obstruction of mail, theft of U.S. mail by a postal employee, and opening of mail. She was sentenced Friday.

A federal indictment alleged Emily opened and stole mail packages she believed to contain drugs in March and April of last year while she was a customer-service supervisor at the East St. Louis post office.

Emily had been free on bond.
